We must maintain our spirit of advocacy, leadership

In the past year, we have witnessed one of the most contentious and emotional political races in our country’s history. Throughout this presidential election, we have been forced to reevaluate the values and ideals that define our nation. What we have learned is that, now, more than ever, we need to come together to uphold our shared values of freedom and equality for all.

'If you weren't here, I wouldn’t have registered to vote'

By Becca Tabor
National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC) Intern

image2_-_Copy.JPGBefore I get to the good stuff, I’d like to briefly introduce myself. My name is Becca, and I joined ACCESS earlier this year as an intern with the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), one of ACCESS' national institutions. I’m currently studying social work, and I hope to someday become involved in community organizing and policy, particularly around U.S. foreign policy related to immigration and global poverty. I feel really fortunate to be working with everyone here at NNAAC, and I am looking forward to learning more and engaging with the community over the next year.

And now for the main purpose of this post: voter registration!

We witnessed such an important presidential election this year and it was in the heat of it that I started my internship. My first task was working on voter registration. Although I am a big proponent of everyone participating in elections, I had never actually registered people before my internship at NNAAC. The first day I went out to register people I was at Monroe County Community College. I was surprised at how many people were eager to register, and in just three hours I had registered 24 new voters!

Why should you support MENA?

Support_MENA_NNAAC.png

Currently, Americans of Middle Eastern and North African descent are not counted in federal data, and must choose to define themselves as Black or African American, White, Asian, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, or American Indian or Alaska Native. With a Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region category, our communities will be able to identify along new ethnic terms and, in addition, specify which subgroup or nationality they belong to.
